High-Percentage Tennis Tactics Guidelines: Directionals

Monday, April 20th, 2009

In this High-Percentage Tennis video, high-percentage groundstrokes are identified based on ball crossing or not crossing your body and relationship of ball and player.
if an incoming ball is outside shot as defined by shots that cross body, the high percentage groundstroke is no change of direction (C.O.D) of ball.
if an incoming ball is inside shot as defined by shots that do not cross body, the high percentage groundstroke is change of direction of ball.
high percentage groundstroke change direction guideline:
outside = no C.O.D
inside = C.O.D
For a down-the-line groundstroke, the high percentage shot is to hit the ball perpendicular (90 degree) to baseline. The shot aiming to the sideline is low percentage shot.
For players with inside-out forehand as a weapon, the high percentage shot is no C.O.D on deep inside-out forehand, and C.O.D on short inside-out forehand.
